As long as space endures

As long as space endures
As long as space endures.
And as long as sentient beings exist.

To dispel the miseries of the world.

And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

William Shakespeare

Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.
